Welcome back Thayo - not seen you here for a while.

Deaf, dumb, and blind, would not prevent communication through touch and smell (including the use of braille).

The old joke used to be the child was blind and dumb and lost his mother..the answer used to be you just tell him he wasnt deaf!

Thayo first yoy said he was just deaf and blind, then below it you say remember he is Deaf dumb and blind.. which changes the whole thing.. This used to be and old joke because people used to automaticly think oh he's he's a deaf mute, but he wasnt deaf he was dumb and blind..

so he could hear you.. Unless I am way off base

Nah, he said he was deaf, DUMP, and blind. Not dumb. That confuses everything..

give him the smell that he recognizes as his mother's scent, and then cut off his nose.  he should recognize the symbolism. [;)]

Maybe..it could depend on his age and how his brain interprets the symbolism.

Thanks for the concern about my absence, i am on a national service.
The smell and touch can announce to the child the death of his mother but its not an effective means

That might do the job but not in all cases..... do you accept. The child could pick up a different perspective of the scenario

The answer is simple> Sice the child can not hear, speak and even see. Then, the care that the mother used to give to the child will be stoped such as giving of the child food, bathing him and so on. when this happens he starts feeling the absence of his mother and he will end up suggesting that the mother is gone. I hope i did justice to that....................

give him robotic eyes, teach him to read, and then write to him that his mom is gone.

Smell, the kid will notice that the new caretaker will smell differently and the touch Tactile experience will also be different. And as he/she can't know of death, as a guess, what will happen to him/her will be much the same bereavement as with you or me realizing that we've lost someone. The only difference will be that the child may hope, for a very long time.
==
Touching a dead one is not the same as touching a living one and the smell won't be right either, so you can't expect her/him to make the cerebral jump from 'living to death'. He/she have to learn the difference before the mother dies to do so. but if he/she was there he/she will know that his/her mother have 'changed', I guess?
